Before you get ready for lunch or dinner today, you may want to check your air fryer.

One of the most popular appliances over the last several years is now part of a recall as Secura has issued a recall for thousands of their air fryers.

WHAT IS AN AIR FRYER?

Air Fryers have become very popular because of their convenience. Air fryers are cooking appliances that are used on the countertop. They combine a heating element with a powerful fan that helps circulate hot air around your food making it cook quickly and even.

HOW DO AIR FRYERS WORK?

Air fryers typically use a convection heat source to heat up the air around your food. Then it uses a fan to push the hot air around your food, making it brown and crispy on the outside without drying the inside.
